5:45 pm
pennsylvania. so are we facing more weeks of winter there is no shadow to be it was terrified as right as rain is rain is on the way according to the groundhog and it's a rare production since eighteen eighty seven but the timing feel has seen his shadow hundred and two times and only predicted seventeen early springs but don't get your hopes up according to usa today phil has only been right about half of the time over the past thirty years and you know who's right. all of the time the weather authority was second with jia yan today working out perfectly evan yesterday said about twenty degrees or more cooler this afternoon that was spot on and tomorrow i'm going to guarantee twenty degrees warmer than what we saw this afternoon so why are you going to like that especially if you like the temperatures yesterday
5:46 pm
right now that will change by this time tomorrow. this evening mainly clear early becoming partly cloudy later on will be breezy and definitely chilly but those temperatures are about as low as we're going to go and then later tonight we're actually see them starting to rise a little bit and current high temperature showing fifty degrees away for the final verdict but looks like we're right at fifty and more effective or take a degree or sell fifty five virginia beach fifty two up in newport news williamsburg as usual coming in with a number quite different than everybody else i never trust that sense or dropping back through the forties then this evening again under clear skies but here's why i'm calling it partly cloudy because later on tonight will start to see some that moisture as the wind shifts more to the southeast and eventually the south and that's why readings will be rising back up to near fifty or even in the fifties already tomorrow by the start of rush hour and by the end of rush hour we should be talking about readings closer to sixty and you know we start the day
5:47 pm
normal for a high temperature in the morning you know we're really talking about some serious warm and sure enough temperatures just about like yesterday up near seventy degrees. maybe a stray shower a few spots during the afternoon but mostly it's going to be more like evening when we see a line of showers and a couple thunderstorms potentially rumbling through wouldn't rule out a heavier thunderstorms are so much wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere even if we get a shower in a pull some those heavier winds down we can see some gusts that are over fifty mph potentially with this line so keep an eye on that notice the temperatures though. for example thursday morning we have some rain around to start the day were in the upper fifties here we are already few hours later in the lower fifties and by late today we're going to fall into the forties with that northerly winds severe weather out here let's take a closer look at it from around tuscaloosa and birmingham north and west but really it's generally a state or so
5:48 pm
occurring right now that will weaken by the time it gets here. that's why we're still saying no chance a couple of heavier thunderstorms but would expect anything like that we hope the vault after tonight fifty degrees by morning forties early rising to fifty degrees and then as we get to tomorrow very very mild rise and seventy one rise in the seventy one and then a chance of some showers and storms very good chance late in the day thursday some showers especially heavier in the morning falling from the fifties into the forties around forty seven chance of a morning shower friday the temperature thirty four early. the media more little bit of a threat of some winter weather right now are leaning against that and then saturday just about normal guys the job for north carolina lawmakers plan to try and improve failing schools. the plan would turn some low performing schools into charter schools the bill is working its way through the general assembly the plan is modeled after programs in tennessee and
